>> announcer: the following program is a paid presentation for the shark rotator lift-away brought to you by euro-pro. >> [british accent]: all right, i agree, your shark vacuum has a no loss of suction sealed system and it's easy to steer, just like me old dyson, but... [harp glissando] my new dyson has the strongest suction of any vacuum! so there. >> well... >> here we go again. >> testing proves that the new shark rotator lift-away... [harp glissando] deep cleans carpets better than your new dyson. >> what-- shark outcleans this $600 dyson? >> 'aid so. and my new shark rotator also lifts away! >> crickey! how'd she do that? >> so i can take the rotator's incredible cleaning power wherever i need to... up stairs, on furniture, under appliances, out to the car... and now i can even put my lift-away on wheels.
8:32am
>> the rotator does all that? >> that's not all. my shark rotator has enhanced swivel steering, and the shark is now the most recommended vacuum brand in america. >> lord love a duck. is there anything it doesn't do? >> it doesn't cost $600. >> hey... [comical drumbeat] >> announcer: the trouble with most vacuums? as soon as you turn them on they begin to clog and lose suction. and they're so heavy and hard to steer. dyson solved those problems with their no loss of suction and steering technology, but those solutions cost nearly $600. two years ago shark introduced their amazing lift-away upright which truly revolutionized the vacuum industry because it too offered no loss of suction and swivel steering technology. but it also featured a sealed system, and it converted into a lightweight and portable vacuum, all for one-third the price of a dyson. even after two years of home usage, the result is over 95% of shark owners still recommend it to a friend.
8:33am
go online yourself to see all the four- and five-star reviews the shark has earned. all this proudly made shark the most recommended vacuum in america. and now shark has redefined the vacuum industry again! introducing the all-new, revolutionary, high-performance rotator lift-away! it's the greatest vacuum breakthrough in the last 20 years. a powerful, no loss of suction upright with enhanced swivel steering for superior maneuverability in and around furniture and tight corners. a lift-away for super lightweight and portable cleaning that tackles the toughest jobs where other vacuums just can't go. and with the optional caddy, now you can put the lift-away on wheels for ultra convenience and cleaning wherever you need it. >> i would definitely give the lift-away five, if not six stars. it just exceeded all my expectations. >> it is the best vacuum cleaner that i have ever owned. >> five stars, absolutely. >> announcer: we've taken the most recommended vacuum in
8:34am
america and made it even better. better suction power for deep-down carpet cleaning that removes the hidden dirt you can't see. better at more flexible multi-surface cleaning. enhanced swivel steering for even better maneuverability. a new, extra-large capacity dust cup lets you clean larger areas faster and instantly empties with the push of a button. and of course you still get shark's patented true no loss of suction technology. best of all, the rotator lift-away offers even more versatility for easy cleaning on stairs and banisters, hard-to-reach places like ceiling fans and bookcases. under small, tight areas like kitchen appliances. instantly remove pet hair and dander from chairs and couches. delicately clean small keepsakes and computer keyboards... or simply take it to your car for super clean detailing. >> i can go from my area rugs to my tile to my thick pile rug and my steps all with one vacuum.
8:35am
>> announcer: and the rotator lift-away doesn't stop there. just like higher priced vacuums such as miele and dyson, the shark rotator lift-away is engineered to have a completely sealed system, and it's scientifically proven to reduce exposure to allergens. for years the vacuum industry has claimed that having a hepa filter was the best way to trap dust and allergens. it's time to clear the air about this dirty little secret. the truth is, if your vacuum does not have a system that is completely sealed, then the dust and allergens you vacuum up escape back into the air before they even reach the hepa filter. that's bad news because allergy and asthma experts such as the american academy of allergy, asthma and immunology agree, even low levels of particle pollution can be damaging to people with allergies and put children, teens and seniors at risk for things like asthma. but the shark rotator lift-away's complete seal technology locks in 99.99% of
8:36am
dust and allergens. that's great news for pet owners and people with allergies. so it's no wonder the shark rotator has been certified by the british allergy foundation. compare the dyson to the new rotator lift-away. both give you a system that's completely sealed, both provide powerful pet hair cleanup with superior no loss of suction technology and swivel steering. but the new shark rotator lift-away gives you so much more because all this no loss of suction power is portable. it has more cleaning capacity, and if that's not enough, the new rotator lift-away actually deep cleans carpets better than the latest dyson dc41. but, perhaps shark's most amazing breakthrough: they give you all this new and improved cleaning power but haven't raised the price by one penny-- still under $200! >> i cannot believe the value that i got with this vacuum. >> announcer: and speaking of value... if you order the shark rotator in the next 30 minutes they'll
8:37am
include their amazing shark steam mop which cleans and sanitizes floors without chemicals. that's a $100 gift for ordering a less than $200 product. but it's yours absolutely free when you order the all-new, amazing shark rotator lift-away. >> hi, amy motta and i'm with shark c.e.o. mark rosen. mark, so i hear you have some exciting news to share. >> let me introduce you to the new shark rotator lift-away. it gives you enhanced swivel steering and better cleaning performance. we added even more suction power and increased cleaning capacity. like the original lift-away the new shark rotator is still the only vacuum... that lifts away to give you that same no loss of suction cleaning power in a portable. the rotator also has a totally sealed system so advanced that it actually cleans the air in your room as you vacuum because its anti-allergen complete seal
8:38am
technology locks in 99.99% of the tiniest dust particles so they don't escape back into the air you breathe. and the best part: we put all that added performance into the new rotator lift-away and still kept the price under $200. and the new rotator power head with enhanced, easy-to-maneuver swivel steering has patented technology that even deep cleans carpets better than dyson's newest vacuum. >> that's a big statement, mark. you sure you can say that on tv? >> i can if i can back it up. >> that's dyson's latest, isn't it? >> it sure is, and actually, it's advertised as having the most suction power of any vacuum. the new rotator lift-away has improved suction power that can actually deep clean carpets even better than that new dyson. so here's a dirt pickup demonstration that i think will surprise and impress you. we prepared both these areas exactly the same way. we poured exactly the same amount of sand on both sides and
8:39am
embedded it deep into the carpet with a heavy roller. now let's see which vacuum does a better job of pulling out that sand. are you ready to go? >> let's go! >> one... two... three... four. all right. >> o.k. >> let's see how much sand we got. >> right. >> you go first. >> o.k. >> all right, now let's see how the rotator lift-away did. >> wow! [chuckles] >> look at that. that's almost twice as much as that newest dyson. look, it even overfilled the tube and went into the funnel. >> that's impressive, mark. i mean, i want a vacuum with that kind of cleaning power because i know that ground-in dirt acts as an abrasive to my carpets, wearing it out faster. >> but you also want great cleaning power like you've just
8:40am
seen so you can remove the dust and allergens that live deep in your carpets so they don't keep getting kicked up into the air your family breathes. >> i like that. >> woman: it's amazing, you can see in that canister everything that's coming up. >> i would recommend the rotator vacuum because i can really tell the difference from other vacuums that i've used and i was really surprised at how much it sucked up every time i used it. >> i am sold on the rotator. >> you can't beat the shark rotator, you just can't. >> amy, it's clear: our new rotator powerhead technology delivers better deep carpet cleaning, but it also has enhanced swivel steering. look how easy and light this is to maneuver-- it's incredible! >> i like the light. that would be helpful. it maneuvers really well too. [♪...] hey, mark... you missed a spot. >> amy, i said enhanced swivel steering. this is truly next generation technology.
8:41am
it's gonna make cleaning your home a lot easier. >> that swivel head makes it much easier to make turns. >> and it moves with our hand and it just angles and turns and it picks up. >> i can get under the coffee table, around the coffee table without actually having to move the furniture. >> oh, and the maneuvering... i don't have to push it too hard, it just turns pretty much on its own. >> your new rotator lift-away cleans better, steers easily and it costs less. i guess i'm not surprised that lift-away is now the most highly recommended no loss of suction vacuum brand in america. and now it's your turn to try the next generation rotator lift-away in your own home. >> announcer: we've taken the most recommended vacuum in america and made it even better. introducing the shark rotator lift-away. better suction power. better multi-surface cleaning. better cleaning capacity. it's an upright with enhanced
8:42am
swivel steering and superior maneuverability. it's a portable lift-away so you can use the rotator's unbelievable cleaning power wherever you need it. and with the optional caddy now you can even put the rotator on wheels-- talk about convenience! just like higher priced vacuums such a miele and dyson, the shark rotator lift-away is engineered to have a completely sealed system and it's scientifically proven to reduce exposure to allergens. for years the vacuum industry has claimed that having a hepa filter was the best way to trap dust and allergens. it's time to clear the air about this dirty little secret. the truth is, if your vacuum does not have a system that is completely sealed, then the dust and allergens you vacuum up escape back into the air before they even reach the hepa filter. that's bad news because allergy and asthma experts such as the american academy of allergy, asthma and immunology agree, even low levels of particle pollution can be damaging to
8:43am
people with allergies and put children, teens and seniors at risk for things like asthma. but the shark rotator lift-away's complete seal technology locks in 99.99% of dust and allergens. that's great news for pet owners and people with allergies. so it's no wonder the shark rotator has been certified by the british allergy foundation. compare the dyson to the new rotator lift-away. both have completely sealed systems. both provide powerful pet hair cleanup with superior no loss of suction technology and swivel steering. but the new shark rotator lift-away gives you so much more because all this no loss of suction power is portable! it has more cleaning capacity, and if that's not enough, the new rotator lift-away actually deep cleans carpets better than the latest dyson dc41. but, perhaps shark's most amazing breakthrough: they give you all this new and improved cleaning power but haven't raised the price by one penny.
8:44am
why would you use any other vacuum when you can swivel, lift and seal with the incredible shark rotator lift-away? >> i would've expected it to cost upwards of $500. >> announcer: but you won't pay $500... or $400... not even $300. are you kidding me? at five payments of $49.95 it's a tremendous value. along with your rotator you'll also receive this onboard crevice tool, dusting brush and the premium pet hair power brush. but wait-- it gets even better! call or go online right now and we'll make one payment for you. that's right-- the new shark rotator lift-away can be yours for just four payments of only $49.95. >> i know you're going to love my new shark rotator. but if you're not happy for any reason, just send it back and i'll even pay the return shipping. but if you do order direct from shark, i'm going to give you my
8:45am
incredible v.i.p. service guarantee. if anything goes wrong in the next five years, we'll take care of everything-- even the shipping cost both ways. you pay absolutely nothing, guaranteed. but if that's not enough to convince you, today i'm also giving away my bestselling shark steam mop for free, just for trying my shark rotator. and the best part? it's yours to keep even if you decide to return the rotator. >> announcer: when you call ask about a very special offer to turn the lift-away into a canister vacuum to give you even more cleaning versatility. also don't forget to ask your operator about the shark dust eliminator kit-- great for pet owners and allergy sufferers. you get all this plus the v.i.p. service guarantee that includes a five-year, full-service in-home warranty plus the free steam mop. and remember, you get to keep the $100 steam mop even if you return the lift-away. shark will even pay the return
8:46am
shipping. with a full 60-day money-back guarantee, you have nothing to lose. that's a total value of nearly $400 all yours for just four payments of $49.95. the new shark rotator-- the next generation lift-away. save big, clean better. call now. [♪...] [music changes] >> i vacuum at least twice a week. for me, a big thing is dust. because my husband has a lot of allergies, i really try hard at keeping my home clean and making sure that he is not having any breathing issues. with the rotator i'm able to use the attachments and that seemed to pick up everything. ...using the turbo brush attachment i'm able to clean up pet hair and dander that has collected on the couches. >> i like it just 'cause i can
8:47am
switch and push a button from hard surface to carpet. i like that, it's easy. >> with this new rotator he'll be able to help with more of the chores around the house. >> mark: with the new shark rotator's anti-allergen complete seal technology 99.99% of all dust, dander, pet hair and other allergens that you vacuum up stay locked inside the lift-away so they don't escape back into the air you breathe. >> well, every vacuum with a hepa filter says they do that, right? >> they say it, but unless your vacuum has a sealed system, all kinds of dust and allergens can leak around the hepa filter and escape back into the air you breathe. and now you can actually see it for yourself with the help of our black light revealer. we tested two different brand-name vacuums with a special dust that glows under black light. i think you're going to be shocked by what you're about to see. this is the dust going into a popular vacuum and this is the dust coming out of that same
8:48am
vacuum. >> oh, my gosh, that is unbelievable. >> now, we did it again with another brand and look: the same thing happened. the dust is leaking around the hepa filter and pouring out of the vacuum. now, when we tested the lift-away with the same exact dust, we didn't see a speck of dust escaping. that's why our anti-allergen complete seal technology is so important for everyone. >> announcer: so what does that mean for you and your family? >> mark: we had an independent lab test how many more particles escape from these unsealed hepa vacuums compared to sealed hepa vacuums like dyson and shark. i wanted to show everyone what that could look like in an actual room in their home. this animation represents the number of particles in the air after vacuuming with shark or dyson. not many at all. now this is a relative comparison of what it would look like after using this vacuum.
8:49am
[scoffs] well, now, that's a lot of dust and allergens. here's the second competing vacuum. whoa! imagine all this in your air. now here's the third one, and keep in mind, all three of these have hepa filters. but clearly... they don't have sealed systems. >> the complete seal technology was important to me because i have severe allergies to dog dander. the shark has been a big help to us because whatever we vacuum up stays in the vacuum. >> so the fact that i can keep all of the pollen and the dust and the allergens in this canister is just a real benefit, and i just feel better knowing that my air is cleaner, my carpet is cleaner, it's not getting kicked back up. it's the best vacuum i've ever used. >> one of the things we really like about the rotator is the complete seal technology. my kids have allergies and when i started using the shark rotator i noticed the dust is
8:50am
not coming back into the air after i vacuum. we love our rotator vacuum. >> announcer: people all over the country are falling in love with the shark lift-away, making shark america's most recommended vacuum brand. now shark presents their latest and greatest innovation in vacuum technology: the all-new shark rotator lift-away! call or go online now and order your shark rotator lift-away at the discounted, special price of just four payments of $49.95. that's an incredible value! along with your rotator you'll also receive this onboard crevice tool, dusting brush and the premium pet hair power brush. plus we'll include a five-year v.i.p. service guarantee. if anything goes wrong shark will take care of everything, including any shipping costs, both ways. you pay absolutely nothing, guaranteed. and if that's not enough to convince you, order immediately and shark will also include

[♪...]
8:52am
>> amy: you say your new rotator lift-away never loses suction, but it seems every vacuum claims to have big suction or no loss of suction these days. >> that's true, amy. but you know what? i can prove my new rotator lift-away has huge suction power and it doesn't lose it. we vacuumed up about six months' worth of industry standard extra-fine dust with my new rotator and this competing upright. so let's empty this other competing vacuum... >> o.k. >> and to make it more challenging for the rotator, let's leave all that dust and dirt-- remember, that's six months' worth inside the rotator. now let's see how many pool balls we can each suck up. ready? >> ready. >> let's go. one... >> one. >> two. >> two. >> three. >> three... four... >> four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14,
8:53am
15... 16! look at the weight of this! look at this-- i'm holding the pool balls! shake yours! look at that! look at that suction power! now that's an incredible suction demonstration for you, amy. >> that's the kind of dependability you want in a vacuum, isn't it? you want to know when you turn it on it's not gonna let you down. >> you really don't expect that much power from this small of a vacuum. even with the canister full, it still kept its suction power. >> this is my new turbo brush. >> o.k. >> check out how quickly and easily it makes fast work out of this pet hair mess. look at that-- the pet hair is gone from the surface in seconds, but i'm also pulling out all that fine dust and pet dander from inside the sofa. it's incredible! >> wow, that's fantastic. that's something every pet owner will love. >> i've had my dog 8-1/2 years so he's definitely a part of my family, and i can't keep him off
8:54am
the furniture. it's a little embarrassing to have someone come over and when they get up, there's some dog hair. ...it's amazing when you can see what it's lifting up. and the pet hair's gone. i think the shark rotator, in my mind, is the ultimate pet vacuum. >> amy: why wouldn't you take advantage of this incredible offer? mark is giving you 60 days to try the new rotator lift-away right in your own home. if you don't love it, no problem, send it back. shark will even pay return shipping. >> call now. i guarantee you'll be happy you did. >> announcer: we've taken the most recommended vacuum in america and made it even better. introducing the shark rotator lift-away. better suction power. better multi-surface cleaning. better cleaning capacity. it's an upright with enhanced swivel steering and superior maneuverability. it's a portable lift-away so you can use the rotator's unbelievable cleaning power wherever you need it.

heard about it. and the results that i found from the individuals that i gave it to, they were astounding. and what makes this product so unique, it had studies behind it. the medical community, doctors, would accept it because it had double-blind studies, peer-reviewed and published. >> dorothy: now, those studies are expensive too, aren't they? >> yes, they're very, very expensive, and this is a one-of-a-kind oil, it's called omega xl, it comes from the, a green-lipped mussel, not fish. it comes from one place in the world, the pristine waters of new zealand. it comes from a shellfish, not fish. and sometimes people will say, "well, if it's from a shellfish, i'm allergic to shellfish." you're actually allergic to the protein in the shellfish and all the protein has been removed. some people will say, "well, shellfish eat off the bottom of the ocean, scavenge." no, these mussels are grown in mussel beds, on vines, they never touch the ocean floor, there's no water run-off, there's no contamination,
9:08am
the new zealand government... >> dorothy: they're specially grown. >> the waters are perfect-- they're grown-- and there's no known side effects with over 20 years' worth of research... >> dorothy: wow... >> no allergic reaction and no drug/drug interaction. so an individual can be on three or four, five different prescription medications and take omega xl, which is a very powerful, natural anti-inflammatory, which is hundreds of times more powerful than normal omega 3s. and with the aging baby boomers, with 71 million people in the u.s. under cardiovascular care today, more people die of heart attacks than anybody... any other disease. 1.1 million people will die of a heart attack this year, more than half are women. 60 million or plus people have arthritis, 20 million plus have asthma, 20 million plus have diabetes. all these have inflammatory components. so you have an american society that's getting older, that wants to remain youthful, you've got the baby boomers out there, 8,000 a day turning 60 years old
9:09am
for the next 18 years, and we're in denial, with all the rock stars in their 60s, we've forgotten age. we act young, but we feel old. nobody wants pain. and i work in a collaborative basis with physicians and dr. downey, whom i'm honored to have here, uses this product in his practice. and here's a man that normally, and i won't only say dr. downey, many doctors are limited to what they have on their prescription pad, and they know that they're doing everything they can to help you, but they also know that there are side effects with prescription drugs-- we all know that. >> dorothy: yes! >> and here a product that's natural, that's one-of-a-kind, that's powerful, with no side effects... it gives a doctor a tool, a weapon that they've never had before. and dr. downey, certainly, will speak for himself, but he's had-- i've met him at his practice-- he's had tremendous results with the product. so again, i'm very pleased and honored to have him here from
9:10am
the medical standpoint because people watching this show will say, "well, ken meares, you're the c.e.o. of the company. you just want to sell product." actually, i wanna help people. they always say the richest person in the graveyard is still dead, so it's not about, not about just that, it's about helping people. >> i... i want you to tell, just a minute here, real quick, i know, i didn't mean to interrupt you, but... >> no, go ahead. >> you talked about how expensive it is to make this one little pill to me... tell that. >> well, yes, this, this bottle takes 18 months to make. >> 18 months? >> the mussels have to grow. we grow those, we have a limited supply. there's an arrangement with the new zealand government that you don't fish out the waters, so they have to be grown, and then when they are processed, it'll take 18 months to make one bottle. and we're able to make about three million bottles a month. so, it's a limited-supply product-- we just don't turn a machine on and press out pills and make 'em, make 'em, make 'em. it's a natural product. this is a super food, it comes from the ocean, and this mussel
9:11am
only comes from that place in the world, only in the waters of new zealand. it's called the oil extract of perna canaliculus. perna canaliculus, that's from the green-lipped muscle. and there's a patented process that our partners in australia paid millions and millions of dollars for. it took 15 years to stabilize the extraction process. this is a product that truly works... it's safe, it's effective, there's no side effects, and when someone has questions on it, you really have two choices: keep the pain or try it. >> or try it. >> you get an unconditional, money-back guarantee, and again, there's medical science and research and data to back this up, and that's why many, many medical doctors use this in their practice. that's why, um, dr. manilasco, who is the... was the head of the florida cardiologists for three years, he was the president... he has hundreds of
9:12am
patients on the product, and he himself is a patient of the product. he said, "ken, i've never had a product that works like this." and he's able to prescribe an omega 3, which is a foundation, very important product for an individual to take. so it's a very unique product. >> dorothy: it is. >> one-of-a-kind. >> now, dr. downey, welcome to club 36, and i wanna ask you now, heart, for example, as you were talking, ken, the heart... there's so many people who die of heart attacks. >> the omega xl, the oil that's the ingredient in omega xl, is an anti-inflammatory, and the cause of all the things that we develop with aging and that cause pain is inflammation. so the whole, the whole purpose of that product is to decrease the inflammation, to reverse the effects of inflammation and to reverse the effects of aging and pain. that's how i present it to my patients, many of whom are probably watching tonight.
9:13am
uh, inflammation is the tendency of the body to heal itself, but occasionally the inflammation goes uncontrolled and it becomes chronic inflammation, and with chronic inflammation you have swelling, and if there's swelling around a nerve you have nerve damage, if there's swelling in a joint you have joint damage and joint pain. so the purpose of that, that particular product and many of the medicines i prescribe, with hesitation because of the side effects, are trying to reverse that inflammation. so if you can prescribe a medication or a substance that can reduce inflammation without causing harmful side effects, that's the best of both worlds. you're providing relief without causing damage. >> and you don't have to have pain to take it. now, a diabetic, what does it do for a diabetic? >> diabetes... [clears throat] pardon me, diabetic individuals have elevated blood sugar, increased blood sugar, and the increased blood sugar has an
9:14am
effect on the nerves, for example... >> yes. >> and the substance in the blood, the blood glucose, can impair the nerves and make them so they don't function correctly. this will decrease the inflammation around the nerve, prevent swelling around the nerve... >> dorothy: it's good for everything. >> ...there's no reason not to try it, or not to take it. the way i describe it to patients is, you're taking it... everybody that takes it, something gets better, and you don't know what it's going to be. >> dorothy: something gets better. [laughs] >> something's gonna get better. and if you take it long enough, i think the pain will decrease but also you'll decrease some of the effects of aging, of life. >> well, now, listen, i'm ready for that one-- how about you? >> dr. downey: i take four a day. >> you take four a day? >> two in the morning, two in the afternoon, that's right. >> uh, there are 60 soft-gel capsules in a bottle. and tonight, only tonight and in the replays, you can get two for the price of one. they're giving you one free for the price of one. so if you go to your phones right now... now, when this is, when i don't have anymore, it's
9:15am
over, o.k.? so i need you to go to your phone right now and call and get... get one. it's $49 for one bottle and that will give you two bottles and you can try, see the difference it will make in your life. you may say, "well, i've tried to take about 10 of them. well, i didn't feel any difference," um, keep trying. because with my girl, she took one and she felt the difference. so, i don't know what it's gonna do for you, but i'm asking you to try it, it'll make a difference in your life. >> well, in recent months, we have heard a great deal in both the media of television, print and newspapers, about adverse effects from anti-inflammatory drugs. several of these drugs have been taken off the market. thus, given the patient population that i serve, i had to search for a new anti-inflammatory agent which would be helpful in the care of my patients. my search led to the discovery of a new product, omega xl. this lipid extract is a very powerful anti-inflammatory agent
9:16am
and has been very effective, as i've used it in the relief of symptoms in my patients who have inflammatory conditions. >> just keep going to your phone because it's gonna take a lot of phone calls to get all these bottles and you want to make sure you get your free bottle tonight, so go to your phone. you know, i'm reading this and it says it's good for allergies and arthritis, asthma, cardiovascular disease... can kids take this? >> ken: absolutely... from two to 102. there's eight million children in the u.s. under 17 years old who have asthma. asthma is getting worse and worse and worse. the air pollutions, particularly the fumes that come out of the back of a diesel truck, the diesel particles will attach themselves to the oxygen and you'll try to breathe it in and it will stunt your lung growth. it has now been proven, large cities-- the l.a.'s, the detroit's, the chicago's, where they have a lot of heavy vehicle traffic-- it's actually causing stunted lung growth. probably the first generation
9:17am
that may die at an earlier age than the current generation. but children from two to 102, again, eight million children under 17 years old with asthma in the u.s. >> so you just... they'll take... 'cause it's a gel-cap. >> it's a soft, little, teeny, soft gel-cap, little, teeny, gel-cap... >> so easy. >> and if someone doesn't want to actually swallow it, you can actually put a little pin in it and squeeze it on their food, if they're two or three years old, but it's also very good for pregnant women. how many times have you heard, you can't have a pregnant woman take anything? a diet rich in omega 3s will help the brain development of the child, actually even from the time the woman is pregnant. from the time a woman conceives, the first 24 months the child's brain triples in size. doctors across the country are embracing omega 3s. it's coming down from the tops of the a.m.a. omega 3s are so important and dr. downey can address that. it's... you talk to any doctor and you say, "i'm taking an omega 3." they'd say, "keep taking it. keep taking it." and it's only the second time
9:18am
that the f.d.a. has ever allowed a qualified claim. the f.d.a. has allowed a claim to say a diet rich in omega 3s may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. it's the first time the f.d.a. has allowed a qualified claim for a non-prescription medicine, the second time in their history. >> now, a child, two years old. see, i have a granddaughter, she's 18 months... i mean, she's a little wildfire, but could i give her one? >> dr. downey: yes. >> dorothy: that's from a doctor, y'all. so she can have one how often? >> in my opinion, this is the safest substance you can swallow... period. >> period. >> i mean, it's for pediatrics, adults, geriatrics... what you're doing, it's a preventive medicine. you're treating that which you've got, the inflammation that you've got and you're preventing that inflammation which is gonna come down the line. so, in my opinion it's the
9:19am
safest thing you can ingest. >> cindy, you have children? this dr. downey's wife, beautiful cindy. [laughs] >> yes, four. >> four? and do you give them to your children too? >> yes. >> that's wonderful. can you tell the difference in their school, their behavior? >> they are all adults, young adults. >> oh, young adults. >> out of school. >> you don't look old enough to have young adults out of school. >> dr. downey: it's the omega xl. [laughter, applause] >> the anti-aging part. >> the anti-aging part of it. well, if it does to me what it does to her, i think i'll take four a day. [laughs] i'll tell you. so, why do you like to take it, cindy? what do you see about it? >> oh, the energy level in me just increased... dramatically within, i'd say, three days. i had a rotator cuff problem in my right shoulder for seven years and i am completely pain-free.
9:20am
and that, um... [applause] i have had inflammation of the stomach probably for the past 12 years. i have none of that. >> wow, so those people who have acid reflux, it would be good for them. >> we went one night without it and it was an amazing difference the next... difference the next day, and i told him, i said, "you forgot to give me my omega xl last night." and i could tell immediately just with the indigestion and the stomach problems. >> wow. >> so i won't go without it, ever. >> ever. >> he said buy 500 bottles before they run out. [laughter] >> buy 500 before they run out. >> mm-hmm. >> we have got all these bottles here and you go to your phone, just because they want you to try it tonight. this is one bottle, but you're gonna get one free. for every bottle you buy, one free. all right? if you wanna buy five, six, can they do that? and one free? no, just one.
9:21am
>> ken: buy one, get one free. >> just one, o.k. you buy one, you get one free, o.k.? so, um, this is wonderful for you and you will have the opportunity to have two months' worth, right here. so this... that gives you two a day. now, if you're like me, i would need two bottles a month because i like it and my husband will like it. >> ken: that's right, that's what happens. >> but, how much is a doctor's visit? you know, this is such a preventative medicine... we're putting you out of business, doctor, i'm sorry. >> you know, uh, i, i... we have a practice, augusta pain management, here in augusta, georgia, and we see a hundred, a hundred people a day in pain. >> dorothy: in pain. >> and that's pain that they've... that's become lifestyle-limiting. they can't do the things they wanna do, they can't go to church, they can't go to the bookstore, they can't do things with their family. so they come to see us with this painful condition. and our, our goal is to get them out of pain, and to get them out of pain as safely as possible.
9:22am
and sometimes i have to prescribe strong, narcotic pain medications and strong anti-inflammatory medications. but i always defer and recommend, try this, try this anti-inflammatory that's natural and no side effects and no harm, so that you can't go wrong with at least trying it. and then i recommend they stay on it because something will get better. >> ken: we're actually helping his business because when you help people, they'll tell their friends, so it'll actually help the doctor's business... not put him out of business, it'll expand his business. >> dorothy: expand his business because everybody will want to have this. the preventative part is what i really like. i really like the fact that i've... i've always been concerned about the heart thing. this will help prevent a heart attack. that's wonderful. >> well, it will help, you can't guarantee that it will, but it'll certainly help. >> i said help prevent it. >> absolutely, it will help. absolutely, it will help. no question about it. >> i can think of a bunch of our
9:23am
partners right now who have heart problems and i would love to have them call tonight and get this, because they've gotta have it. >> ken: there's 1.1 million people dying a year, but now they call them cardiovascular event... and heart attacks are bad, but you can recover without any real noticeable effects. but what's worse is a stroke, because you can either lose your ability to speak or you can lose all your motoring skills, you can lose the ability of your leg or your arm. strokes are devastating, and i've worked with stroke victims and it's frightening... when you have the ability to think but the words won't come out and the circuitry in the brain has been short-circuited and it causes such agony to the, to the person who's had the actual event and then what it does to the family members, it tears their heart out. so the word "healthcare," it's not outdated, but doctors like dr. john downey here, there's only so much they can do for you. but it's also the combination of healthcare and self-care.
9:24am
you have to help yourself. i mean, medicare, medicaid, medi-cal, we're collapsing our medical system. you've got 8,000 people a day turning 60 years old for the next 18 years, the baby boomers. 47 million people had no health insurance in the u.s.a. last year, for the whole year, and during a part of the year, 81 million people had no health coverage at all. that causes stress to people, and with stress you can have an inflammatory... stress and inflammation are two very, very bad problems. and inflammation is probably the number one underlying cause of most conditions. >> i started taking it back in december and immediately started noticing that i had a little more energy within the first couple of days. about three to four weeks later, i realized that i was not having lower back pain. >> with the omega xl, you know, my life has been changed completely... to be able to exercise after 25 years of not being able to exercise. you know what, i wish they'd
9:25am
have had the omega xl 30 years ago when i first got arthritis-- it's 30 years-- but now since i do have it, i tell everybody that has aches and pains, everybody that has any type of inflammatory problem that this is the product they need to try. >> there's two different benefits that i've noticed by taking omega xl, one being the increased benefit of not having to worry about stiffness or joint problems. the other benefit has been the difference i've seen in my skin. um, i've seen more resilience in my skin. being out in the heat, the sun exposure can definitely dry out your skin, get dehydrated, and so by taking this, in particular, omega 3, being omega xl, i've definitely seen a great improvement in my skin. >> well, i had two compressed discs... i went to see a very renowned back specialist here in miami and was told there was really nothing i could do for it, not even surgery... but i started taking the omega xl and in about 72 hours, i
9:26am
started noticing a significant difference in my back and the swelling was a lot less. it was really an answer to prayer. i didn't know what i was going to do. i have children down to a very young age and i want to be active with them for as long as i can. it's allowed me to keep up with them and experience good things and that's thanks to omega xl, no doubt about it. >> i included omega xl in my daily regimen and after taking the product for 30 days, my pain significantly diminished and now after six months of taking the product, i can say with my whole heart that i no longer feel stiff and sore, i don't feel the constant pressure in my back that i once felt and i have increased my mobility. >> she gave me several of these little gold-looking pills and she said, "try this." and so i said, "o.k." so i tried it and i liked it and i think i was on it for about two weeks and suddenly
9:27am
i noticed that i had very little pain. >> couple years ago, i had nerve damage that started affecting inflammation and problems in my toe area. i was introduced to omega xl and i took it myself and i can tell you that it works because i am not in pain, i am not in discomfort and i can resume my daily active lifestyle that i used to have for the last 30 years. i believe in omega xl; it works. >> i have pain from what i call arthritis in both eyes and at night time, i could not sleep without most time getting up, taking something for it and it really didn't do a whole lot of good. and since i've been on omega xl, i can go to sleep at night and not have to wake up with pain, which makes a big difference because i feel much better in the morning. and also my husband takes it-- gene brown. he takes it for his neck and his shoulders and it helped tremendously. he has so much problem because he does construction work and he
9:28am
would be in the evening time in lots of pain. and that is not happening right now. >> i drive between seven and eight hours every day and sitting behind the wheel has taken a toll on my back, which i've had a problem with for over 40 years. and driving the limo has made it worse and since i've started using omega xl, it has helped considerably. i've used several other products, some of which i really don't want to take, but nothing has worked as well as omega xl. >> so i started taking the product. i immediately noticed my energy level changing. i would drag in the morning, i would be tired. i found myself jumping right out of bed and getting myself ready to go to work. i also noticed probably on the fifth day of taking the product, pains in my leg stopped. >> dorothy: it's really important that we do take care of our bodies, and if there's preventative things we can do, i mean, then you don't have to go to a doctor and you don't have to buy all those drugs. those drugs are expensive. i don't know about you, i haven't had to buy any, but when russell was beat up and he was
9:29am
in the hospital and then we had to buy drugs for him, afterwards, i mean, they went into hundreds of dollars. >> ken: absolutely, and some people take better care of their cars and their boats than they do their own body and their own health. and it's really about prevention and the whole healthcare system today is looking more at prevention as opposed to correction. omega xl offers hope, it really works. >> it really works. >> you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. >> i think i better take one right now-- do you want one? have you had one today? >> rebekah: i've had mine, thank you. >> you've had yours? everybody had theirs? well, i haven't had mine, so here's mine. we'll be replaying this program, but i just want you to know that if you'd like to have one of these, please go to your phone. there's still phone partners here to answer your call. so we're asking you to go to your phone-- make that call.
